ericjhberg posted a question in Wishlist - Feature and Content RequestsOne of the most frustrating and time consuming experiences in VW is the copy and pasting of database header rows and other worksheet elements. It would be an incredible if, when copying and pasting a database header row, that the paste result would remember the summarization and sort settings of the original copy. Instead, it forgets all summarization and sorting and if you have a fairly complex system of these results, you have to manually restore them on all necessary columns. This is also true with merged cells. Worksheets should remember the merge and wrap text settings of copied cells and apply them to the paste. Excel does this, so should VW. Pretty basic, but a big potential time saver.
Copy & paste between drawings/ 'windows' - sometimes works, other times not. Haven't found a pattern to it. The command on 'window' drop-down doesn't let me switch betwen open files. Found a work-round but it's a real pain. Anyone else had this...or is it user error?! M
Christiaan posted a question in Wishlist - Feature and Content RequestsI'd like an option to copy and paste objects from another file but without importing Classes. The information would come in as an object that behaves like a Viewport, with its own Class visibilities. The difference being that you wouldn't need to create a Workgroup Reference, nor import all the data from a Design Layer when creating a Design Layer Viewport (both of which I find eventually weigh a VW file down). When co-ordinating with engineer's drawings, for instance, I tend to copy and paste just the bits I need rather than creating a WGR and Viewport. The downside is it brings in their Classes. If they have a lot this can impact quite a bit on Class navigation.
